Alejandro Silva, the Argentine super welterweight champion, will defend his title on Saturday and begin his journey in the “Copa Miguel Castellini” tournament.
Sampson Boxing and Tello Box are pleased to present this Saturday, February 27, at the “Roberto De Vicenzo” Activity Center, in Berazategui, province of Buenos Aires, the start of the super welterweight tournament “Miguel Ángel Castellini Cup”, that, on this first day, will feature three fights and, as always, the television of TyC Sports.

Another member of the super welterweight tournament is Maico Sommariva from Cordoba, who has an injured hand and could enter the next date.
The format aims to promote competition among several of the best in the category and, given that it has the endorsement of the WBC, enter or climb positions in the world ranking of the entity chaired by the Mexican Mauricio Sulaimán.

The companies promoting the 69,800 kg tournament wish to clarify that they have invited all the boxers ranked in super welterweight and medium.
Thus, it is recorded that, in super welterweight, the South American champion and national number 1 Adrián Sasso (the manager does not leave it), the national champion Alejandro Silva (accepted and will participate), the 2 Diego Ramírez (accepted and will participate), at 3 Gerardo Vergara (the manager does not let him), at 4 José Villalobos (he did not accept), at 5 Gino Godoy (his father and manager does not let him), at 7 Emiliano Pucheta (he does not give the weight), at 8 Rodrigo Coria (the manager does not leave it), at 9 Marcelo Farías (traveled abroad) and at 10 Maico Sommariva (a hand was injured and could enter the next date).
Nahuel Galesi is not in the national ranks, but he will participate because he accepted the invitation and has enough scrolls to compete.
